Abstract and Modern
Another beautiful fall day in Montreal! I wanted to play a bit more with layering dresses/skirts over the UP dress, so I started with this summer tank dress I bought last year. A vintage belt (as usual), teal leggings and my black combat boots were then added, plus a grey vest I got about 5 yrs ago, and a burgundy silk/knit cardigan I got in London last fall. Nothing that impressive in terms of transforming the dress, but for some reason I really love this outfit…sometimes things just FEEL right.
I ran across a friend the other day who didn’t understand how wearing the same dress for 30 days had anything to do with raising money to build a school. It’s true, on the surface these 2 things may seem unrelated, but doing the UP has made me think even more about how much I have, how to make smart & sustainable purchases and how to get the most out of what I DO have. Can we really spend 1000s+ dollars every year on clothing and not give anything back? Ironically many of the children in India are MAKING these clothes we’re buying!
